At the Shilling Grange Orphanage, the kids look up to Clara Newton who is more like a mother. Most of them have been left without families and had their homes bombed into oblivion, leaving them destitute following the war.
But even Clara is feeling the pain of the war after she lost her fiance who was employed as a pilot in the American Navy.

She is now desperate for a new start but the orphanage is short of money, the children are always crying while Rita often tells her terrible tales of nuns that used to run the orphanage.
She wants to help them but she is woefully inexperienced. Overwhelmed, she starts thinking that maybe the kids would be better off without her.

However, she is not all alone as an ex-war hero, and former Shilling Grange resident with deep brown eyes named Ivor lives next door. He does not trust the fiercely independent Clar but he is very good with the children.
It is not long before Clara begins to find her way with Ivor’s help and that of other locals. Adjusting to her new life and healing from her grief, she begins wondering if maybe she has finally found her place at the Shilling Grange Orphanage.

But then she is informed that the children will have to be sent away as the orphanage is to be sold. Peg and Joyce who are her favorites will be sent to a home for disabled children while the rest will, he shipped to Australia.
